    They released their reserve grade fullback to Canberra and Lee. I can't imagine either were on that much.

    Unless they're going to release more...

    Much like Cogger won't be on much either. Dare I say it Brenko Lee was probably on more then what Cogger will get in his first year of the contract.

    Probably mate, no point in us to release him there, his depth and we are a kazillion under the cap.

    Casiano went to the Storm. He was on about 400 plus

    And off contract. Off contract players don't free up cap space unless they are signed already.

    Was 2 million ever publicly stated outside of the media? According to the same people Ponga is on a million dollars as well as half the other big name players that signed with a new club in the last year. They potentially could have freed up a million or maybe more with Graham & Lee, that seems a reasonable amount to me. I just think it's more on the unlikely side they would try & put one past the NRL auditors by lying how much they had to cover, let alone having the CEO of the entire game involved in a conspiracy.

    Yeah your right man its pure guess work.

    Good article on foxsports recently for making salaries public, would make cheating a hell of a lot harder!

    Player contacts should be accessible by request for board members of all NRL club's. Oversight is best undertaken by those invested in fairness--your opponent's

    Truth be told, the public could guess to within 10-20% degree of accuracy the value of player contracts, anyway. So there isn't much to lose. Although, it is unfair for players to have the specifics of their personal income made available to broader public as it exposes players to the potential nefarious motives of who knows

    if they release a player early for us then id say go for it. Otherwise no point! Keep him for this season incase of injury!

    Just read an article about how Cogger will be starting halfback this season at Canterbury if he makes the move. If it’s true and they want him that bad we should demand a player swap.

    Frawley was playing some decent footy, so they must really rate 20 year old Cogger. Which if true, like Mozza says, should mean we have some leverage to make demands

    Aside from a broken down Jmoz, tho, who would we take?

    Ditto it's weird he played really limited minutes, and never seemed to be blowing that hard.
